Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Electric Cart Tour
From US$56.00

See Washington, D.C., monuments and landmarks on an evening tour by electric vehicle. Exploring D.C. after dark means seeing the landmarks dramatically lit, and the quiet, open-sided vehicle gives unobstructed views and great photo opportunities. From the Jefferson Memorial to the White House, and Capitol Hill, and a moving series of war memorials, you’ll see some of D.C.’s top sites with historic context from a guide.

What to Expect

Make your way to a central location in Washington, D.C., and then board an open-sided electric cart for an eco-friendly, small-group trip through the heart of the city.

Floodlights bring out the architectural details of each landmark, and you’ll see the Jefferson Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, Tidal Basin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial at their very best.

Continue to the National World War I and National World War II memorials, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on your way to the White House, which is notably photogenic after dark.

After a final stop by Capitol Hill, this tour concludes at the original departure point, which is within walking distance to other top D.C. destinations.

Fantastic way to see the sights

I can't recommend this tour enough. Julia was a fantastic guide (and driver!) who has all the knowledge and lots of little stories. Very friendly with great sense of humour. It was a cold night and raining but nevertheless our group had fun!

Great way to see the sights.

We had Chris as our guide through the city. He was a great host and very knowledgeable. Seeing the city at night was a great change of pace and very pretty. Definitely recommend the trip and Chris.

I also went in the warmth so have no idea if they're heated. But they do have plastic that rolls down from the top to provide relief so I would think it wouldn't be like being exposed to the elements.

we did a Thursday but agree that it probably wouldn't matter as late as it is.

The Smithsonian stop is just a couple blocks from the start of the tour.
